Algebraic structures are discussed for control systems that maintain stability in the presence of resonance uncertainties. Dual algebraic operations serve as elementary connections that propagate the stability of inter-stable subsystems. Frequency responses within complex half-planes define different types of inter-stability. Dominance between incompatible types is discussed. Inter-stability produces sufficient but unnecessary stability conditions, except for conservative systems where the conditions become also necessary. Multivariable systems, colocation of actuator and sensor, and virtual colocation are treated. Instead of passivity, inter-stability relates stability to the mapping of poles and zeros by transfer functions and transfer matrices. Inter-stability determines stability on the subsystem level, is less complex even for multivariable systems, adds design flexibility, and relaxes the dynamic data problem of large systems such as space stations.
